Homework say: Think of water as wisdom: the calm ebb and the free flow, giving us time to pause, collect ourselves and gather strength, revealing our capacity to adapt. Remember standing in the rain? Soft drops from sudden storms hitting the ground, the earthy smell of petrichor rising up. The way it makes you feel like time is suspended and everything is new and clean and refreshed. 

Made from a rapeseed and coconut wax blend manufactured in the UK: the rapeseed crop is grown in the EU on existing agricultural land and the coconut crop is grown by smallholder farmers in Asia. 

How to use
Burn the candle for 3 hours the first time you use it: you want the melt pool to reach the edge of the jar. And remember to trim the wick to 5mm before relighting. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
